Why not send us yours?

Hello Team Hempsted!

I do hope that you have all been able to enjoy a nice relaxing weekend, and of course are keeping well.

This is the start of National School Sports week and as such we have put together a GSSN virtual school games competition for you.  You may set this as a personal challenge or for your more competitive pupils get involved competing against other schools.

The days are themed around four sports with three challenges for each day. They are Athletics, Football, Handball and Cricket.

It would be really great to hear how your school has got on throughout the week. You can email me or upload on our tweeter account @AtGssn.

Have fun and many thanks!

Mrs Bassett

'Let’s get #NSSWtogether trending!'

'We are so grateful for your support of National School Sport Week at Home, supercharged by Sky Sports, and, if you have been doing activities over the weekend, hope that it has got off to a great start for you.

It would be brilliant if we could all jointly get the hashtag trending, so we are asking all 6,000 registrants to post the following or similar :

I’m supporting @YouthSportTrust National School Sport Week at Home to celebrate the impact of sport on young people’s wellbeing. Sport has the power to bring us together even when we’re apart. Find out more #NSSWtogether @skysports

But it doesn’t stop there! Please continue to post throughout the week to let us and everyone else know what you are up to. It’s been a difficult year and we hope that seeing young people enjoying themselves through sport and play will give us the boost we all need.

Enjoy the week and stay safe and well.
Team YST'

Dear Team Hempsted

There are only two days to go until the start of our first National School Sport Week at Home, supercharged by Sky Sports – but you still have time to register.

So far, nearly 4,000 schools, parents and organisations have registered to take part in this unique campaign whose aim is to give schools, families, communities and sports clubs the opportunity to engage with a series of virtual sporting challenges which help young people capture the enjoyment, competition and camaraderie that they have been missing out on during this period of lockdown. We understand that some young people are at home while others are at school, but we want everyone to come together to feel connected through the power of sport.

Please find a letter below explaining how to find out more.

Please join us and make this year’s National School Sport Week at Home truly one to remember.
Many thanks
Mrs Bassett

Team Hempsted


In these uncertain times Team Hempsted believes that physical activity is even more important in our daily lives. It gives us all a sense of purpose, focus and motivation each and every day. Keeping children active ensures physical literacy and physical fitness maintained at a time when children’s lifetimes could easily become more sedentary.
Team Hempsted has a reputation of providing children with a huge range of sporting activities and it is important to keep these experiences going. Nationally we are challenged to provide inclusive and meaningful experiences of sport and physical activities for ALL young people, in support of the Government’s ambition of 60 active minutes a day.

Please see below for ideas of activities your child can do each day . House points will be awarded for those timetables completed and emailed back to Mrs. Bassett at
